What is PRIDE?
PRIDE stands for Parent Resources for Information, Development, and Education and is the standardized training for people wanting to foster or adopt children.

Foster PRIDE Training, Adoption PRIDE Training, and Foster PRIDE Core are designed to teach knowledge and skills in five essential competency categories for foster parents and adoptive parents:

  • Protecting and nurturing children
  • Meeting children's developmental needs, and addressing developmental delays
  • Supporting relationships between children and their families
  • Connecting children to safe, nurturing relationships intended to last a lifetime
  • Working as a member of a professional team
